Kind of sad about Kiyoshi Kobayashi retiring being the last of the original cast. Monkey Punch is gone too, so it's a whole new era of next generation people making Lupin now.
That said, I'm also a bit relieved because he was honestly started to sound too tired to play Jigen, so it was almost taking me out of it to hear him.
So, I watched Dead or Alive last night. The art style is kind of hard to look at, though far from the worst. Kind of reminds me of a lot of cartoons I watched in the late 80s. Yet, there are some really nice sequences, artistically done.
I like that Zenigata is actually competent in this one. Unfortunately Goemon, as per usual, does almost nothing.
Plot was decent, but one thing ruined it for me
! Here is this super high tech sci-fi nanomachine computer, its creator makes his son the one thing that can control it so that nobody else can misuse it, yet….it's easily fooled by someone in a costume.....
